Lowell is in full get-into-all-the-things mode. He’s pulling up on cabinets, pulling things out, trying to climb onto windowsills. He nearly made it inside the fireplace the other day.
Yeah…. we needed to baby-proof the house a while ago.
Of course, we know to plug the outlets, secure the dressers to the wall, and keep sharp objects out of reach. We have the cleaning products and other chemicals behind a Tot-Lok. As we go back through this process, though, I realized there were a lot of other hazards that were easy to overlook.
You’d think having 2 babies grow up in this house before him we’d already have all this covered, but as the kids got older, we became less vigilant. We put the blinds back up when we thought we would put our house on the market. We installed new cabinets, and didn’t put cabinet locks back on them.
We’ve taken for granted that the 3 year old and 6 year old don’t put everything in their mouth anymore.
